Upon seeing the last Smith video, people were saying they would like to hear some of the instrumentals.
See, I listen. I listen and I love.
I tracked down some of those DU versions, so let me know which one you'd like to hear most.

Well Christian Siriano and the Smoke Monster are clear favorites. Not much difference between the two, really. They could have had Smoke Monster designing couture evening wear and Christian Siriano knocking down trees and chasing Hurley around the island.

punk in writing said...

I'm gonna have to listen to DU once more before I can decide which one I'd like to hear as an instrumental...

"37mm" or "summer shudder" would be fabulous!!

CRGolden said...

Haha. Oh, wow. That was amusing.
Hmm... I think I'd like an instrumental of 37mm, Kill Caustic, or Love Like Winter.

I agree with whoever said something about doing a poll.

the infamous maria said...

I would totally love to the ninja extreme a Kiss and Conrol or Kill Caustic instrumental!
A poll would work too!

Sarizzle said...

The Interview & Kiss and Control would be amazing to hear. I have such weaknesses for those songs..

Thanks so very much Jade! <3 We all appreciate it.

Sharra said...

It would be awesome to hear any of the DU songs (really can't make up her mind).

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

Kiss and control, all the crescendos, decrescendos, f,p,mp,pp are freaking wonderful.
Thank you jade

StraightToHell said...

1.)The Missing frame
2.)Kill caustic
3.)Affliction
4.)Summer Shudder

Those would be sick! XD

Synthetika said...

ALL OF THEM!!
GARARARARARA *chomp*



You should start an advice column o.o

Bailey said...

Now do you really believe Christian would be running around the island with that coiffed hair and skinny jeans?
Interview, Killing Lights, Summer Shudder

Christian deserved to win 100%! I was so happy for him.

I think you should surprise us on what we hear.


Sarah/TheAnalyst

Susan said...

i'd happily listen to whatever you post, but would especially love to hear kiss and control, interview, or endlessly.

i still want to know why hurley doesn't get any thinner. i would think remote stranding (is this even a real phrase?) would be a great diet.

thanks for keeping us updated, you rock.

Rebecca said...

Endlessly, She Said and/or The Interview. Thank you!

ArtemisClydFr0g said...

If you could give us all of the instrumentals it would be amazing, but if not, my top picks would have to be:

The Interview
Summer Shudder
Love Like Winter
and 37mm

YazFace said...

Oh Jade, you will never cease to be totally, insanely amazing. Yes, INSANELY.

37mm and The Killing Lights! Though any others would still be just as sweet ^_^

I don't think Christian would make a good monster. He might mess up his hair.

Lacy Cherie said...

endlessly she said, the interview, 37 mm, love like winter, summer shudderrrrr...:D

again, thank you for being so damn kind.

Janice said...

endlessly, she said...for sure

Drea said...

Kiss and control :D
mhmm most definately
Haha to the smoke monster designing couture.

Blaqk Elektrik said...

Jade, I now have this great mental image of Christian chasing Hurley around on the Island making comments about Hurley's choice of clothing.


I would love the instrumental for THe Interview.

angelic_cries said...

I'm so glad you listen, too!
You have no idea (maybe ya do..) what it means to us. ^_^

Okay so a poll would have quickly solved what we want to hear from DU. Haha. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Does On The Arrow count?

The Interview & Endlessly She Said are my faves off the album, so I'll have to say them.

=]

Maybe you should just put them all up?


Thanks you for being the amazing 'buff' guy you are!

Pash said...

Summer Shudder. Make it so.

Though 37mm would be minty fresh as well...

No mind. I trust you to make the radical choice. By the way, your blog cured my hiccups.

37mm, definitely <3

lindsay said...

Kiss and Control, all the way.

SophieSmitten said...

Yay@Christian winning. That was hella FIERCE. haha. =)

That's hard, but my vote goes to

Rabbits Are Roadkill On Rt. 37
or
Endlessly, She Said.

HAZEL!theROCK. said...

ahhh. 37mm, it's an awesome song. <3

Anonymous said...

why dont you make a poll for insturmentals

Sarah said...

Whatever your favourite is, would be wonderful! :D
--Sarah

Jessiqa said...

I vote for "Endlessly, She Said" or "The Interview."

Blosk said...

Kill Caustic, Affliction, and Kiss and Control seem to me, to be the top three most interesting to hear instrumentals of.

Actually, Prelude 12/21 would be pretty cool too :P

Anything we can get we will all be extremely grateful for!

Your the best Jade, who else would do this?

darkness069 said...

Huh, for someone who loves postin polls, i actually thought that with this you'd come out with some "which one are the raddest to hear instrumental..." or sumthin like that.
Oh well...

In my case, i'd looove to hear 'endlessly, she said', mostly bcuz its one of my fave songs of the album. Although, whichever you decide to put, i'll gladly say YAY!

thanks in advance for the awesomeness, Jade


xoxo

Qarlieaux said...

DAMN MAN. You are amazing. I would love to hear any of them.

x?xCassiex?x said...

oooooo 37mm would be totally kick ass!! How come u aren't doing any for blaqk audio? in the preview for the eye i loved listening to the instrumentals, can't wait to hear whatever u put up!

ElizaDay said...

You know we will all be insanely pleased with what ever you happen to post, but my vote will go to "Kiss and Control."

And there is no way the Smoke Monster would be running around in that much chiffon!

Krystina said...

I shall go with "Kiss and Control."
It's really awesome that you're doing this, Jade.

<333

Haras said...

37mm and Love Like Winter.

Katie ;] said...

Carly said...

ALL OF THEM!!!
Well.
I guess The Interview, and Endlessly, She Said.

There's some beautiful piano covers of On the Arrow on YouTube. You should check it out if you ever get the chance :]

<3

Anonymous said...

All of them?

Not Your Typical Mama said...

I'd love "Kiss and Control". That's gotta be my favorite song on the album.

said...

Hi Jade!
all of them would be nice ♥
but if i really had to pick i would choose Endlessly, She Said.
oh and maybe Kill Caustic and Summer Shudder too :)

Steven said...

Hey man, I love how your blog is entirely personal. I dont know how ya do it =P

Disaster said...

37mm would be amazing!

whitegillis said...

"Kiss and Control," "Prelude 12/21," or "The Killing Lights" would be amazing. Thanks for the offer!

Anonymous said...

ahahahah you are something else. wow

Anonymous said...

oh, and any instrumentals you give us will be fantastic. I vote for all of them b/c instrumental anything of AFI is killer. I used to always fiddle around with the sound systems in my house anyway to get the main bass parts coupled with the beat and guitar (sorry Davey) exceptional muuuusic

<3

Ashleigh said...

Any of them would be awesome! Love Like Winter, Endlessly and Interview in particular, I think.

I would say Summer Shudder, but I think that would spoil the song for me.

Anonymous said...

I stood behind Hurley in a taxi line in Florence, Italy... he is a big guy, I don't see why he can't just take the smoke monster, whilst wearing haute couture perhaps?

Anonymous said...

Oh, BTW some new Australian music you may be intereted in listening to are Cut Copy and The Presets... both are about to drop new albums and will be doing gigs at Mezzanine in the not too distant future. I suggest you get along if you are in the mood to sweat it up and dance.

Some music that perhaps should not have been broadcast to a public audience was my boyfriend and I doing a version of Girls and Boys at karaoke! In homage to BA ofcourse. Ahhh good stuff!

Oh yeah... Endlessly, She Said and 37mm get my vote.

ciao amelie said...

endlessly she said?

interview or endlessly

x.kaaliita.x said...

Hi Jade!!!
hope the best 4 u and the band ^^

about the songs...
i would love prelude, love like winter, endlessly, she said aand 37mm ^^

love ya!! <3
x.kaaliita.x

Kristi said...

Kiss and Control or Endlessly She Said

maryna said...

So many songs to choose from...

The Interview would be my number one choice, because it's my fave, but I would want to hear instrumentals for all of them.

Don't tease us by just posting one!

kathavokx said...

Jade, you are entirely amazing.

Like, it means SO much to us that you actually pay attention to what we say, and try to please us as well. Seriously, thank you so much for that.

As for what songs, though, I'd have to say right now my two favourites off Decemberunderground would be Kill Caustic and 37mm.

The guitar in Kill Caustic is amazing, by the way.

esperanzagomez said...

ENDLESSLY SHE SAID and KILL CAUSTIC!

WhoStoleMyMuffin?DAMMIT said...

I'd give my kidney for all of them! Hell, I'd give my brain! I know a person can't live without a brain, but I'd be willing to try it.
But my most preferred would be...(if the following are options that is, since some are bonus versions and a cover...) Prelude 12/21, 37mm, Endlessly She Said, On the Arrow, Rabbits Are Roadkill on Rt. 37, and the Jack the Ripper cover.
Oh god I'm so indecisive. Heh. The whole album is just so ridiculously wonderful and addictive.

Karlye said...

37 mm, The Interview, and Love Like Winter.

Thank you so much Jade. :)

She Sees Light said...

Maybe Prelude 12/21, or Endlessly, She Said... or anything in between.

Stix said...

I think the Killing Lights would be a nice one. Or Endlessly She Said.

I love your polls.

I'm not sure if you read my post about how Godspeed.. etc. didn't actually break up.
You probably knew that though =]

Lovee <3

Emji said...

You listen, and WE love :D

I've thought about something... You're really great, one of the best actually.
Are you aware of that? You should be.
I think it's a shame that good people must live in a world filled with bad people, mean people that is, filled with hatred.
uhm.. keep on swimming! :*

All the songs would be awesome instrumentally...But I prefer the vocals.I don't know lost.. or that other show..Man, I'm out of touch....Hah, I'm out of step with the world....

i vote for 37mm and kiss and control. <3

ariiiiiii said...

Christian has one thing that the Smoke Monster doesn't...
"I'M SO FIERCE!"
As for instrumentals...
I personally would love "37mm", "The Interview", "Endlessly, She Said", and "Kill Caustic"


much amore!

xxconverse_girlxx said...

love like winter, kiss and control, 37 mm, summer shudder. :]

kirstie said...

Yay!! I was one of those who suggested the instrumentals. w00t!! However, I can't decide on any so whichever you decide to let us hear would be awesome.

Haha...I'd love to see Christian doing that. I just can't imagine it very well x] But the thought does make me laugh. I'm so glad he won!!

Love you!! <3

I don't like to pick favorites among greatness, Jade. (:

1)37 mm
2)Kiss and Control
3)The Interview

Anonymous said...

"Endlessly, She Said" would be my first choice. Then maybe "Prelude 12/21".

But you should definitely make a poll for this. It'd be a whole lot easier than trying to read through all of this.

JulietEchoSierra said...

Kiss and Control or Endlessly, She Said instrumentals would make my day good.

Broken Hearts and Torn Up Letters said...

Hahahaha. Funny. Even if it wasn't supossed to be funny,It was. XD

joha said...

kill caustic
Endlessly, She Said

hiimniko said...

Well as many as possible.


[Damn, my AFI poster just fell off my wall and dragged everything with it.]

LLW, 37mm, Summer Shudder, The Killing Lights, Kill Caustic, Prelude 12/21, The Interview, Endlessly, Miss Murder, Affliction, Kiss and Control, The Missing Frame... Which is the whole album :/


The whole album is a hot mess, fierce!

Whatever you can find, you should post <3

hiimniko said...

This feels like making a Christmas list.


The day I hear full DU instrumentals, it will be Christmas II.

Ol' St. Jade

Christa said...

best mental image ever

Anonymous said...

Endlessly, She Said, Affliction, Kill Caustic, Kiss and Control, all would be great

Miraenda said...

Amazing, only one person asked for Miss Murder and that's cause the whole album was listed...

Really, it's incredibly sweet for you to have hunted these down, so any you do provide will be fantastic. I personally love Prelude 12/21 and Miss Murder. Would be cool to extend and remix Prelude (I always wanted it to be longer), but that's just a kind of "if I have my biggest wish come true" type of comment, so never mind me on that one.

The overall consensus appears to be The Interview, Endlessly She Said and Love Like Winter from what I can see in comments anyway. All are great, thanks again for whichever one(s) you do pick :)

Shmuffles said...

The entire album, if you could.
:D

Eddie K said...

Summer Shudder and/or Love Like Winter. Come on!

Simply Surrounded said...

Kill Caustic or 37mm. Or you know... both. Or you know, the entire album. <3

I know this is gonna seem really random and really lame, but you and AFI saved to lives tonight. Thank you so much.

@lisTair said...

i would love to hear your theories about lost...please!

i would love that playing in my room just to get that winter feeling.

1thatuloath said...

Aww you're far too kind Jade. You cheered me up a bit on this lousy day :)
Out of all of DU, probably The Interview, 37mm & Kiss and Control. Prelude would be awesome too though.
Thanks again dude. Seriously, don't know what I'd do without you.
hugs.

Any dates? XD

Oh and can you please give my love to davey for me XD


Jenni
Xoxoxo

paradajz said...

I think the best instrumental tracks were all on the last Smith video, but love like winter was THE best, it's a whole different song when it's instrumental.


Oh and how are we going to get the tracks, should we like... enter the DU barcode or something? Just don't post them on iTunes because a lot of people don't like buying stuff over the internet.

Anonymous said...

miss murder, kill caustic, love like winter.

thanks jade.

Jade! Thank You! Count me in for Summer Shudder. Im craving for

BLAQK AUDIO INSTRUMENTALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that's awesome, Jade!

37 mm and love like winter would be amazing.

:)

*morning*star*light* said...

Hey Jade, That's a tough one but, probably
The Missing Frame, Kill Caustic, and The Interview!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nicole K said...

We haven't seen the Smoke Monster for awhile, how do we know it and Christian are not one in the SAME?? They turned off the detector thingy so the Smoke Monster could have gotten bored with waiting around for Ben to turn the security system back on and left the island to fulfil its dream of becoming a designer. IT COULD HAPPEN!

But I digress! I'd love to hear instrumentals of The Interview, Endlessly, She Said and The Missing Frame - please. Thank you, Jade!!

Anonymous said...

LOVE LIKE WINTER INSTRUMENTAL PLEEEEEEASE! and prelude would be killer.

as you wish said...

I think my top three choices for instrumentals are:

The Killing Lights
37mm
The Missing Frame

<3

Carmen said...

Damn, it's so hard to choose... can't we have them all? ^^''
But I think I'd like Endlessly, She Said the most. Kiss And Control would be great as well.

It's really cool that you'll give us ANY of the songs so I'll be happy with whichever it'll be :)

Have a great day ^^

Kiss and Control & The Interview

RockerLane said...

Any reason why the dates are in the year 2009?

hiimniko said...

I believe Jade did it so the Answers would stay at the top [questions too].

But it would be difficult to show when there is a new post, so I think thats why he put 2009.








I wonder why we just don't have a poll?

the Jesseh said...

Ok, I'm thinking...
Kiss and Control. And Summer Shudder.
Kill Caustic would be awesome, too.

PS. You're freakin' awesome, Jade.
